The kids will love these messy backyard art projects! Tons of fun for summer!
When the weather warms up its great to take the activities outside. We love the playgrounds and backyard board games but especially love to take our art projects out to the backyard! And a bonus for mom – less mess to clean-up!
In fact, these backyard art projects can get as messy as you want and clean up will still be a breeze – just hose down the patio. The clean up process and the risk of ruining furniture are usually the two biggest reasons stopping us from daily art time. As spring and summer roll around we spend much more time outside so it just makes sense to take the art time outside too.
If you’re worried about the kids getting paint on their close you can use this hack for messy projects to cover up. Or you could let them enjoy creating artwork in their swim suits – especially if it’s hot outside!
When they’re done painting they can have fun washing off in the kiddie pool or running through the sprinklers.
